YoOoOoO!!! Training w/ Tim Ep3 is on its way!!!! @dimosyyoung
Today’s lift will include 2 very special guests 👀👀👀 Stay tuned 🤙🏼
There’s supplements that are a necessity and then there’s the “nice to haves”
MEGAWATT v2 is a definite NICE to have! This pre workout will make sure you have the energy to go to the gym and get an amazing lift.
I’ve tried a ton of different pre workouts over the years: 4, Superpump, Jack3d, Ripped Freak, Animal Rage, N0 Explode, and probably some others I can’t remember.
Where Megawatt differed from these is I don’t get any of the nasty side effects the others gave me and the energy feels much more natural (less jittery).
If you’re looking for a new pre workout or need a way to motivate yourself to get to the gym, hit the link in my bio for free priority shipping on some Megawatt V2 and let me know what you think!!

What are you going to do?💪💪
3 months progression of my back - July 2018 to September 2018.
If you've been with me from the start of this journey, you'd know that I'm most proud of my back. Reason being it has made the most significant progress and improvement amongst all my muscle groups. Though I may have been drifting away a bit from my back program in recent weeks, due to some unforseen circumstances, I will definitely get back on track. Shall definitely strengthen this muscle group to no extent and work towards that 2.5x, and ultimately 3x, bodyweight deadlift heh 😋

3 Way Dumbbell Fly — It’s flannel season baby!
I posted this exercise awhile back and I decided to implement it again on my chest day as more of a rehab move. See, I strained an intercostal muscle in my lower left rib yesterday so I’m being extra careful not to overstretch or expand my rib cage too much and exacerbate the strain. Nothing to keep me out of the game, just a minor irritation. It’s all good though because it really forces me to keep perfect form, breathe correctly, and not be too brash with weight selection.
This is a great one for all over chest development. You hit upper, middle and lower all in one exercise! After you complete one motion in each direction THAT is one rep. I shot for pyramids of 12,10,8,6 today.
Squats 159/350 5x1
Deads 152/335 4x2
I'm using commie units now bois my son Lenin would be proud
I used to HATE HATE HATE deadlifts, I would do the absolute most to avoid the exercise. Whenever I did the exercise in the past, I did them hella wrong and I felt dumb af. Now I'm at the point where I love them. Don’t get me started on my lengthy limbs which I felt made it even harder to perform the exercise. Once I found out how great the exercise was for you, I never looked back.
I’m doing sumo deadlifts here with sets of 8x8. It looks weird because most people prefer conventional style (with your hands outside your legs rather than in), but sumo is my favorite. Is there a difference? Not really, I’ll explain more in my next post. The main difference is foot placement, muscles used on the initial contraction, and range of motion. .
The main reason why I like this style because it promotes less stress on your lower back. It’s a great exercise to develop your legs. I always like to switch up my leg days with my compound either focus on squats or deadlifts. This is also a great exercise to get your hip mobility up so that you can perform strenuous glute exercises. .
Why no shoes? My shoes I wore were my NMD XR1 which have squishy soles. Squat/deadlift with squish soles are no good. I don’t have flat bottom shoes, so barefoot is the way to go. It feels much more comfortable and secure. Also, it makes it easier to keep your weight on your heels, maintain balance, and maintain the engagement of your glues/hammys.

So I might have something here with this low bar squatting... why haven’t I been doing this?! 😭
Was originally wearing shorts but they tore right down the middle during warmups. 😳🤷🏽♂️ #bootygains
Today wasn’t even supposed to be legs at all but I just wanted to squat. Trying to get used to positioning and the feel of the bar still so figured today would be a good day to work on them. Worked up to 366 and felt really good. Hit a single at 406. Went for 446 (3rd vid) and I’m 100% sure I can get it but I missed today. Got about halfway up and the bar rolled forward and I lost all stability. Oh well. Wet down to 436 (1st vid) and got it fairly easily!! That’s a 10lb PR!! Then got a double at 406 (2nd vid)! That’s the first time I’ve EVER hit a double over 400. Today was REALLY good.
Now for some Michigan football! #GoBlue
